I’ve been working on a couple of projects lately that have kept me pretty busy. I’m not going to announce them just yet, but one will be ready to announce by the end of next week, hopefully.
For anyone just coming to my blog, you’ll soon find out that I’m Trans. I don’t hide it, and I probably don’t talk about it enough, but I’m not ashamed of it. I started this project last year, as a blog about Trans news. But as I got to thinking more about it, I realized that I could do so much more.
Trans people deserve to be heard just like everyone else. It’s not easy to come out as Trans. When I came out as Trans on my site I received a lot of support from my friends and from people that I had just met. It was a great feeling. At the same time, I’ve received some hurtful comments and e-mails. While I know that in the big picture, it shouldn’t matter, the negativity that seemed to jump out of the screen from those comments and e-mails got to me. I can only imagine what kinds of things other Trans people have heard, or read.
It’s sad when people are so narrow-minded and think the only solution to our “problem” is that we need God in our life. It’s also sad that people just don’t want to understand who we are, but just want to put us down. I’m not after special treatment, I’m after what everyone else wants and what some people already have. I don’t consider myself to be less of a person, and it’s sad that some people view me as such.
Anyway, I’m getting off topic. Next week I’ll be launching my project officially. So be sure to check back then. If there are any fellow Trans people reading this and want to know what it is early, shoot me an email or IM me. I’ll be happy to fill you in. I have a few more kinks to work out, so it would be nice to have some beta testers.
